Tourbillon Watches

*/?>

Tourbillon watches have, since the end of the 18th century, represented the absolute pinnacle of horological ingenuity and craftsmanship. Invented by Abraham-Louis Breguet in 1795, the tourbillon was designed to counteract the effects of gravity on the delicate parts of the mechanical movement. With the introduction of new materials and watchmaking methods however, the tourbillon is not as necessary for accuracy as it once was. Despite this though, they are still highly sought after by collectors and are widely produced by prestigious Swiss brands. Many new innovations for the tourbbreguet-twin-tourbillon-2illon have arisen in recent decades, including watches with multiple tourbillons.

  • True Swiss tourbillon watches commonly sell for over $100,000 today and are still considered to be among the most beautiful watch complications available
  • Don’t be fooled by cheap alternatives or Chinese models, they lack the craftsmanship and integrity of the handmade Swiss pieces

Servicing a tourbillon complication requires the utmost attention to detail and must only be preformed by the most highly trained watchmakers available.

About the repair
Thank you for repairing my watch so quickly! It is my favorite watch, and I was glad it was easily fixed. I'll try my best not to drop it again. I look forward to having all of my watch needs met with Govberg.

Thank you, my TAG Heuer looks like new. Your response and email updates were great and you delivered earlier than originally promised.

The repair/refurbish on my watch was excellent. I was reluctant to service my watch over the Internet, but now I will never have a watch serviced - or buy a watch - anywhere else. Great job!

I was apprehensive to send my watch all the way across the country. I followed the simple directions I was given on your website and received confirmation right away that Govberg had received my watch. That was a wonderful touch to make me feel good about sending my watch away. When my watch was shipped back to me I was able to follow it through the mailing companies tracking service. Thank you very much and I will always use Goverg for my future watch repair.

I am so pleased with how you resurrected my Zeno. What the AD couldn't do after three attempts you did plus the outstanding job of coresponding to my questions. Not only did you fix my watch, you made look like new. The carrying case was a nice touch and the return packaging was outstanding. Thanks again!
